Comment (by zooko):

 I'm very happy to report that since I updated {{{pycryptopp}}} to
 {{{v0.5.28}}}, that now {{{sudo easy_install allmydata-tahoe}}} works on
 my Mac OS X laptop even if I have none of the dependencies pre-installed

 Now if only we had an automated test which would go red if {{{sudo
 easy_install allmydata-tahoe}}} were to ever ''stop'' working...

 (Probably it already worked before I updated {{{pycryptopp}}} ''if'' you
 were using {{{easy_install}}} as provided by {{{setuptools}}}, but if your
 {{{easy_install}}} is provided by {{{distribute}}} then you need [http
 da672fdb8119caea967d4f3270b4a36ecccfea59/trunk the workaround] in
 {{{pycryptopp-0.5.28}}} for
 build-dependency-is-being this distribute bug].)

 ([*] Except the {{{pycrypto}}} dependency doesn't work because
 http://pycrypto.org is unreachable (as it has been for days) but the PyPI
 record at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pycrypto/2.3 shows
 http://www.pycrypto.org/files/pycrypto-2.3.tar.gz as the "Download URL" so
 {{{easy_install}}} always tries to download that file if it needs
 {{{pycrypto}}} and then aborts the Tahoe-LAFS build when it can't connect
 to pycrypto.org. The only work-around I can come up with for this at the
 moment is to add {{{--find-links=http://tahoe-lafs.org/source/tahoe-
 lafs/deps/tahoe-lafs-dep-sdists/}}} to your {{{easy_install}}} command-
